A lovely little riad in a great and very peaceful setting. It's location is at the end of a short track off the main road to M'Hammid which is just a few kilometers further on where the road ends (Camel caravans take a further 50 days to reach Timbuktu).
The riad itself is surrounded by the desert, albeit fairly green desert with an abundance of tamarind trees. The dunes nearby are small but a short walk (or camel ride) takes you to some 50' ones. There are several ancient villages and occupied Kasbahs nearby including the old M'Hammid Kasbah; The caravans' jumping off point for the desert crossing.
The accommodation is clean and comfortable. Four of the rooms are directly off the roof terrace which provides pleasant views over the locality. The food is excellent with some of the vegetables home grown. Wine and beer are available.
The owner Roselyn (who is french) and her staff are very friendly and welcoming but speak very little English.
